Issues in Injury Control Course Module

Project Instructor: David Grossman, MD, MPH

This module was developed as one of four scheduled training courses required to be completed by Fellowship participants within a 12 month period for the Indian Health Services, Injury Prevention Fellowship Program. This course was designed to provide an introduction to conducting injury prevention research projects. Special emphasis is placed on hypothesis formation, choosing the correct study designs, data collection, ethical considerations and conducting literature reviews. See the appendix for a draft course outline for the five-day training that used both didactic and interactive teaching and learning methods. There were 14 students in the class in 2001 and another 14 students in 2003.

Future course initiatives: The course is offered every other year.
